Card Corner!

Happy Wednesday!
I've spent 1/4 of this day thinking that it was Tuesday...
that's what a Monday holiday will do to you :)
I'm sharing a couple of cards that I made for 
Monthly Challenge and this week's Card Corner.

For the Card Corner Challenge we were asked to use Roly Rosies
in some form or's what I came up with:
 Harkening back to the Owl Card that I made a few months ago,
I decided to once again use Roly Rosies in an unconventional way and 
fashion them as the eyes for my jack 'o lantern!

I started with a 4" circle and hand-cut leaves 
(I free-handed these, but svg files or punches could be used instead).
For the "stem", I cut a small portion from one of the Neutral Roly Rosies.
After rolling and securing the medium-sized Roly Rosies (black), I punched a small
circle that I then embellished with an even smaller glittered circle for the eyes.

Adding adhesive from the POGO Dispenser is an easy way to adhere 
the circle to the center of each bloom.  Lastly, I cut a some-what shewed
rectangle to create the nose.
Supply List: Makin' Waves: Surf's Up 12x12 Paper, Fish 12x12 Paper; 
Monster Mash: Fall Medley 12x12 Paper, Pick of the Patch 12x12 Paper and 
Magic Words 5 x 12 Sticker Stacker; Roly Rosies - Neutrals;
 Tools: Hybrid Petal Roller, POGO Adhesive Dispenser and Colored Foam Tape - White

Imaginisce September Monthly Challenge
participants are asked to create a card or layout using:
2 photos, a chevron pattern/design, 2 patterned papers and 2 embellishments.
Here's my take on the challenge...a card for my dad's birthday!
 I downloaded a couple of golf-related photos from the internet and 
used the HELLO CUPCAKE Collection to complete the card.

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
